LONDON: British Prime Minister Theresa May appointed Sajid Javid as the new Home Secretary on Monday after the previous interior minister Amber Rudd quit over the treatment of some long-term Caribbean residents wrongly labeled illegal immigrants.

Javid, 48, a former managing director at Deutsche Bank, was previously Communities and Local Government Secretary.

Javid is not the first British-Pakistani to join the UK government. Earlier, mayor of London, Sadiq Khan has also his origin from Pakistan. __The Nation
